Avalokiteśvara

Avalokiteśvara often sits on a cold rock, and is rarely seen in a scene of colorful extravagance. The Dharmic form of all the Buddhas and bodhisattvas is spread across all of time and space, and is of an incomprehensible realm. The body will not be tainted by the falling heavenly flowers only through the purity of emptiness without self and Dharma. The chaotically organized falling of the various heavenly flowers are somewhere between natural deliberation and inadvertence. The bodhisattva’s suffering in saving and enlightening all sentient being is also a carefree Dāna (giving of charity, alms). The heavy green rock with bushes of flowers and leaves in the foreground creates balance and harmony in the picture through the serenity of Avalokiteśvara in white on the cold rock and the elegance of the falling flower.
